It's one layer time at Riley and Company!


I was so happy that Vera decided on this challenge for us ladies over at Riley and Company.  I absolutely love one layer cards!  Sometimes I have a hard time with them, but I love the challenge of making the simple look amazing!

I hope I have done that here with Hammock Riley:


You can find Hammock Riley HERE at the Riley and Company Store.  The Funnybones sentiment is called Money Doesn't Buy Happiness and you can find that HERE.

Make sure you head on over to the other blogs to check out what my teamies have made!

My first time as Hostess!

Yup, you heard right!  It's my first time hosting over at the Riley and Company Blog!  I am challenging the team to make a card or project with an outdoor/summer sports theme!  This is perfect, because it helps me make a card that showcases all that I have been bringing my kids to for the WHOLE summer!


I have used Baseball Riley that you can find HERE at the Riley and Company Store.  I colored him with the team colors, and made the word "star" with die cuts to represent the All-Star team.  I love how this card came out, and may make a few more for thank you gifts!


Check out the blog and then head on over to these lovely ladies blogs and see what they have to offer:

Christmas in July at Riley and Company


It sure is hard to think of Christmas at a time when the sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and the bats are swinging!  I have been very busy lately with my kids' baseball and softball teams.  You probably get tired of hearing me say so, but they are awesome!  Both of my kids have won their state tournaments!  What great groups of kids they all play with!

So back to Christmas....I have to say this was a challenge for me (thanks Jackie!) to think of snow and gifts right now, but all of the stamps at Riley and Company sent me some inspiration!


I have used Merry Christmoose Riley Clear Set that you can find HERE at the Riley and Company Store.  The sentiment is from Christmas Words Set 2.


I made this card using a Sizzix die that sure makes it easy to fabricate a swing card.  By the way, do you know how hard it is to photograph a swing card????  Oh well, at least I got flats of the back and front of the panel!

Make sure you had on over to the blog and then to the other design teams sites to check out their creations.
